National well-being: letter to Daily Mail, 10 January 2011

The Daily Mail website referred to ONS work on measuring national well-being. Paul Allin wrote to point out that the public debate was still open and views were welcome.


Dear Sir,

On 10th January 2011, you published an article on your website regarding the debate on how we should measure our national well-being.

The debate is important because it helps make sure our measures capture what really matters to people. We hope Daily Mail readers will tell us what matters to them, and they can do so at

Yours faithfully

Paul Allin
